Hot Mess Lacquers - Across The Trailer Park

After receiving a $10 credit from Copious recently, I went to see what I could snag. 

I saw this polish AND the name & just HAD to have it.  I mean, what blogger wouldn't want a polish that's named similarly to their blog?  This is one of the three in the White Trash Trio.  The other two are Aquanet & Redheaded Step-Child(which I ordered that one too since I am a redheaded step-child).  I'll share it as soon as I get it.  I'll stop blabbing for now & tell you more after the pic spam.

This is 2 coats of ATTP over 1 coat of China Glaze First Mate.  I didn't use a top coat in the pictures, but did apply China Glaze Fast Forward after taking them and it's pretty smooth.  I didn't do any clean-up as I'm kinda rushed for time tonight.  I has no issues with application & you can see I got a TON of glitter on there.

Description from the Etsy shop:
  • Do you dream of living beyond your circumstances? Want to look fabulous for less? With its blue and green glitter in a cobalt jelly base, Across the Trailer Park exudes luxury and glamour. Looks incredible over dark underpants and even better all by its lonesome! You know what they say, though - you can take the girl out of the trailer park, but you can't take the trailer park out of...well, your secret's safe with me. ;)

Dare I say this is possibly a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Across The Universe???  I can't be certain, as I do not have ATU, BUT it's close enough to perfect for me(yes, this song popped in my head).

**EDIT 9/9/13 - Hot Mess Lacquers is now defunct and this post is for archive purposes only.**

Note ~ This polish was paid for in part by a credit from Copious, I paid the difference.


  1. I was looking at this going, "Is this a play on DL Across the Universe?!" Talk about tongue in cheek - totally love it.

    1. I didn't even think about it until I got it and put it on.

  2. Gorgeous! It does remind me of ATU with a lighter base! And cheaper I bet!

  3. yep - you needed this!

  4. Yeah, it's a play on ATU :)
